Mukesh Ambani-drove Reliance Industries said on Wednesday that the US-based investment firm KKR will purchase a 1.28 percent stake in its retail arm, Reliance Retail Ventures, for Rs 5,550 crore.
The exchange gave Reliance Retail a value estimation of Rs 4.21 lakh crore, Reliance Industries said in an administrative statement before market hours on Wednesday. The agreement is probably going to reinforce oil-to-telecom combination Reliance Industries’ retail presence in the homegrown market.
